The 1 hour trip, (Cottonwood Creek), we took was the highlight of the Buena Vista trip for our girls. The stables are located to take full advantage of the nature you want to see - mountains, creeks, aspen - when you come to Colorado. You...More

This is the second time we have taken our grandchildren to these stables. We had a great time last year and an even better time this year. They are great with kids and the ride is great (we do the one hour one).

I got to go for only 1 hour and loved it all every moment Conner was our guide he did great, and the horses were very well taken care of and very nice.

My husband and I booked the 2 hour trail ride. Such a beautiful ride with different scenery and crossing the stream 3 times. Our horses were wonderful! Wish I had time to go again while I'm here!

We have been riding at these stables on two different trips to Colorado. The people there are very helpful and friendly and the guides on the riding trips are career cowboys who tell lots of great stories while you ride. A good family activity.

I am guessing you cannot, but I would call them to ask. There may be liability issues if you are not using their horses. But like I said, call them and ask. Their horses were outstanding. Very responsive. I was on a retired... More
